Farm to Food Truck
Heartwood’s Mobile, Wood-fired Grill
From May-October, the Heartwood Grill is available for all types of events from weddings and concerts, to business events and private parties. Featuring the freshest, local ingredients from our farm and the farms of friends and neighbors, our seasonal menus reflect the best Vermont has to offer. While we’re known for our tacos, if you can grill it, we can make it happen: burgers, brats, wings, steak, veggies, pizza….We’re happy to customize our menus to fit your needs. Our food truck is a festive addition to any outdoor event. The open-air design of our trailer allows the crowd to be part of the kitchen and our bar-tops create a place for people to gather. Not only that, but we're totally off the grid - which is great if you want to throw a party, say, in the middle of a field.

"Meghan catered a rehearsal dinner for 45 people held at my house last September. I was a little apprehensive about hosting such a large party, but from the planning stages through to the clean-up, Meghan was delightful and helpful. The food was outstanding, the presentation beautiful, and everyone had a wonderful time. Meghan is a true professional and her calm demeanor made everything seem easy. I would happily recommend her to anyone planning a special event."
"Working with Meghan was one of the easiest parts of our wedding. She catered our rehearsal dinner and everyone raved about the food. We really wanted tacos, and Meghan turned out a spread that was packed full of amazing local products and little touches that elevated the food from good to fantastic. Meghan is really good at coming up with creative menus and tweaking them to suit individual tastes and needs. Not only was she able to work within our budget and modify things as needed, but she was also able to feed a crowd with a wide range of food allergies and keep everyone happy. [...] On top of the delicious food and high level of professionalism, Meghan is friendly and accommodating. I would definitely go to her again should the occasion arise!"

Whether she is working an event of a few hundred people, or setting up for our daily patrons, she is prepared and always has a smile on her face. Meghan uses fresh, local ingredients and provides a wonderful presentation and dynamic flavor profile."
